The Pocomoke River Canoe Company, in nearby Snow Hill, Maryland, has canoes, kayaks, paddleboards and motorboats ready for a spectacular day on the water. Travel just 40 minutes from Chincoteague, and then paddle back through many centuries of natural history on the Eastern Shore’s prettiest, most pristine river – the Pocomoke. The Pocomoke is gentle and placid, almost primeval, and the boats at the Pocomoke River Canoe Company are spacious, comfortable and secure. We guarantee a day’s adventure for everyone from novice to experienced paddlers. 

What to bring

Pack a picnic, bring your fishing tackle (the Pocomoke is a popular destination for freshwater fishing), bring your binoculars and your sun screen.  But leave your bug spray at home – there are no mosquitoes on the Pocomoke! We offer short trips right from our scenic dock, or portaged trips from remote, narrow and cypress-bordered stretches from a few hours to a full day in duration. Take our word for it – you will never see a more beautiful river.


To learn more, and to reserve your boats, call (410) 632-3971 or visit We’re ready to launch you on your Pocomoke River adventure daily through mid-October, weekends until the end of the year, or any time by appointment.
